Today will be the first in a new series of posts which I will do once a month, (Lord willing) on the last Saturday of each month, to give those of you who read this blog an opportunity to submit your requests as to what you would like to see me address on this blog in the future. Would you like me to write more poems? Then please vote and consider leaving me a comment as to what topic you’d like me to write one about, and I will consider writing on that topic which I will always write from a Christian perspective.

Do you have some concerns about a certain pastor or teacher, or something they are teaching? Then please vote and leave a comment as well, and I will be happy to do some research on that pastor, teacher, or topic, and focus on that particular person or teaching in an upcoming post. Or I may simply write briefly about the person or teaching and then include links to some good posts addressing that person or teaching that have been written by other Christians who are well respected and trusted. However, I continue to urge you to always  test everything you read and hear against God’s Word to see if it is true or not (Acts 17:11) –including everything that I write.

Maybe you have some concerns after reading a certain book that left you feeling very troubled, and you’re searching for some information on the author to see if what they are teaching is Biblical or not. Share your concerns and the name of the author and book, and I will do some research and write a post addressing the author and book in question. I am considering the possibility of writing some book reviews later this year –if time allows. I am not an expert on any certain topic, by any means, but I am definitely a Berean and a detective-at-heart and will gladly do all that I can — with God’s help — to give you some helpful information to put those troublesome thoughts to rest, and to encourage you in the process.

So please take a minute and vote at the poll I posted below, and leave me a comment, as well!

Thank you very much for stopping by! And thank you very much for taking some time out of your busy day to read my posts and poems!

God bless you!

“Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” (Acts 17:11)

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” (Ephesians 5:11)

“The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.” (Romans 13:12)

“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that you none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” (Hebrews 13:3)

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” (Romans 16:17,18)

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.        (Colossians 2:8)

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”           (2 Timothy 4:3,4)

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4)



‘ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD…OR THE WORD OF MAN?’ — A COMPARISON OF GOD’S WORD, THE BIBLE, WITH THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’ (UPDATE: Because I decided to read the whole Catechism book (which has over 700 pages) instead of briefly looking through it, I am not quite sure when I will have this post finished. Lord willing, hopefully by the end of May or June).
